As I told you all before, I have been diligently throwing myself in the development of a new business venture since everything wrapped up with the wedding.
During the process, I had moments of stress (Many that I’d like to forget), and moments of wanting to throw my hands up and turn it all over to my husband. In the end I got through it.
I was quite shocked that I was so stressed because I’ve planned tons of events for my family and friends in the past and never was I stressed…just pure excitement and happiness in making their visions come to life.
Toward the end of my own wedding planning, I remembered that joy for planning and it caused a light bulb to go off in my mind. I wanted to turn my enjoyment of event planning into a business.
So introducing: An Adams Original – Event Designand Planning Firm. This is what I’ve been working on.
When the thought hit me, I talked it over with my husband who threw all his support at me, and I hit the ground running. I’ve been taking study courses to add a level of “expert” knowledge to my practical experiences; making contacts in the event planning world of Dallas; and working on my marketing plan.
I still have much to do, but I am well on my way. Today is my internal launch date. I launched to my family and friends weeks ago and begin advertising on theknot.com and weddingwire.com. I even reached out to a friend of a friend who I helped with her wedding and a cousin that I helped to get reviews from them.
I’m really excited about this new chapter in my life. It's funny that for so long I was trying to figure out what a great business of my own would look like. I was thinking that my talents could only be used in my professional government setting, and I didn't even pay attention to the things I was already doing. Sometimes things are right in front of our eyes (and hands), and we don't even notice. I'm glad I finally took notice of my abilities.
